Michael Todd aka Transcendent Device (or Marspiter on labels as Somnambulant and Foreshadow) brings us 4 deep droning fragments of nightmares. Covering mainly the lower ends of the soundspectrum, he keeps things simple but precise. With sparse though effective reverberated melodies, meshed in what could be percieved as ritualistic chanting, Transcendent Device paints a dark minimalist landscape of interesting outworldly textures.

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night in the dark and felt that you were dead and that your whole life had been an illusion you dreamed in the void?

Finding a diamond in the rough.....
Every once in a while, one is able to come across something special. I am frequently finding myself searching for music that does more than just simply entertain, and the project "Transcendent Device" has released an EP called "Degree Absolute", which does this quite nicely! From the very start, I feel as though I've been transported to a Buddhist monestary in deep space. Crushing vocals give the feeling of the expanse of the universe, while electronic sounds make everthing seem almost futuristic. All the while maintaining flow and atmosphere. In my opinon, "Transcendent Device" is music for those looking for deep meaning, symbolism, and intelligence from their listening experience.
